As you heard on Thursday (March 12), Georgia Highlands College will temporarily suspend classes, including online classes, for all students effective Monday (March 16) for two weeks.
Please note, if you are a student of eCore or eMajor, your classes will resume as scheduled.
The reason for the temporary suspension of classes is to allow time for USG institutions to test their business continuity plans and online instruction modules and for state officials to continue to assess the current situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) in Georgia.
All on-campus student-sponsored events, meetings, and activities will be postponed until further notice.
We understand you may have a lot of questions.
Your instructors will begin to reach out to you with specifics, and we will update you with more information no later than Tuesday afternoon (March 17). Please continue to check your GHC student email and highlands.edu for updates as they become available.
As always, the health of our students, faculty and staff is our highest priority, as well as each student’s academic success and future. We will continue to work with the University System of Georgia leaders in collaboration with state officials and Georgia Department of Public Health to act on the most up-to-date guidance available.
